Abstract

Bangladesh economy was flourishing during last couple of decades with on an average 5-6 per cent growth. As a result, we are hopeful that, Bangladesh could get place of middle income country from existing lower middle income country status by 2021, graduate from LDC by 2030 and finally become a developed economy by 2041. With this view in mind our political leadership offered vision 2021, vision 2030 and vision 2041 from respective platforms. More or less policy reforms have been initiated to align with the vision and create a pro-growth environment. Entrepreneurship development and private sector growth got attention of the government to be promoted and prosper. As a least developed country (LDC) Bangladesh has few built-in barriers like poverty, unemployment, limited resources, shortage of technical knowhow, absence of good governance, corrupt bureaucracy, absence of true sense democracy etc. towards its development. But recently we are in front of few external barriers like recent flood in the northwest, Rohingya crisis in the southeast and upcoming national election in 2019. These three crises could be well managed if concerned authorities play a respective role with dedication and neutrality. Each of the above mentioned crisis could create unrecoverable damage in the way of our economic prosperity if these are not being managed with professionalism and liability to the nation.
